Annually, Community Action holds a community breakfast the Friday before the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday. This Breakfast was created to be a reminder to the Golden Isles and surrounding communities that we must work together in unity to truly make a change and build a foundation for a better future.
This year Community Action brought a national name to speak at this event, Dr. Steve Perry. King worked to spread a message of love, Perry said, so that all people can be free. Perry encouraged everyone to focus on the needs of this community, to bring people together for a unified purpose.
